He also mandated them to set up the machinery for the employment of the ten thousand Rivers youths into the State Civil Service, insisting that both exercises are not political and must be completed in the next one month.

The governor explained that when the new Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) leadership in the state paid him a courtesy visit, recently, at the Government House, he disclosed to them that the former NLC leadership was hostile towards the state.



According to him, “leadership can bring about progress. Leadership can bring about setback. Unfortunately, the then leadership of Labour was very hostile to the government and so we felt that we have to tarry for a while.  Now that we have a leadership that is willing to work with government, those problems are now a thing of the past.
